Eggslut has announced it will be opening its second UK site in London's Fitzrovia in July and has committed to hiring hospitality workers made redundant as a result of Covid-19.
The egg-based breakfast brand will open at 19 Percy Street with an adapted restaurant design to align with social distancing measures, including cashless payment, a one-way system and plastic screens at tills. All staff will wear plastic gloves and masks.
The restaurant plans to open for walk-ins if regulations permit, however will operate a delivery and pick-up service if not. The new design has also been adopted by the existing Portobello Road restaurant.
Bruno Pires, operations manager at Eggslut, said: "We are absolutely thrilled to be opening our second UK site in the heart of London. Eggs are more popular than ever, during our opening week in 2019 we served over 1,000 eggs a day, showing just how big an appetite the UK and in-particular London has for the humble egg! We are excited to be pioneering the trend of the egg and supporting more hospitality workers by expanding across the city."
